Crafty Cardmakers challenge 6 - autumn


Here's my DT card for the 6th Crafty Cardmakers challenge, which is 'autumn' - I've just used autumn colours but you can take the theme as far as you like. Hope you'll find time to join us :o)

I've followed the fab sketch at Passion for Promarkers and my card also fits the theme at Creative Inspirations Challenge which is to make a special card with numbers on.

I've used my brand new Victoria Case stamp that I bought from Quixotic Paperie - love this stamp, it's great for slightly more 'grown up' cards. She's coloured with promarkers with a touch of white highlighter. The paper is Bo Bunny, with DCWV cardstock and some ivory pearlised card. The flowers are cut from the same paper with a x-cut punch and then shaped with an embossing tool, with flat back pearl centres. I've used a bazzill template to make my pearl swirls and finished off with a computer generated sentiment.
